Jodie epitomises the character and spirit of the modern game. Intelligent and articulate, she is an ambassador for rugby-league-playing women everywhere, but she more than matches that with her achievements on the pitch. An England stalwart, she captained Lancashire in 2015 and is one of the stars of the all-conquering Thatto Heath women’s side. To top it off, she was voted Her RLA’s Player of the Year in 2015. Keep watching Jodie…she’s got many great years ahead her – as long as she’s not poached by that other code. Here’s Jodie’s reaction to winning her award in 2015. And you can watch her talk about her England rugby league career here.
